Te Timatanga Ararau Trust

Te Timatanga Ararau Trust was first set up in 2009 and run’s multi-sport events known as IRONMĀORI. From the first event in 2009 with 300 people to now holding events across New Zealand with up to 6000 participants, IRONMĀORI has grown from a relatively unknown to the provider of the largest Half and Quarter triathlon in New Zealand. In addition, it has been acknowledged as the biggest club provider into Ironman New Zealand for the past 2 years. IRONMĀORI was set up to tackle growing issues of ill health amongst the Maori population and is an event open to all people.

Since our inception we have also branched off into other categories being Events, Helath and Welness, and Training which are each explained below in various tabs.
